Wendell Ford Expressway in Owensboro closed after vehicle strikes bridge support beam

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (June 7, 2024) The Westbound lanes of the Wendell Ford Expressway in Owensboro are closed after a commercial vehicle struck a bridge support beam beneath the Carter Road overpass.

Westbound traffic is asked to divert to Carter Road. Duration on this closure is currently unknown.

The crash will also result in a closure of slow lane traffic on Carter Road until the bridge support can be repaired. Engineers say the Carter Road closure will likely last longer than the Wendell Ford Expressway closure due to damage to the support beam.
